we spent a fun weekend with friends in forest hill where the coffee shop scene is strong. when i lived there over ten years ago, there were a few nice spots but in recent years, spaces including st david’s coffee house where the fantastic artwork of illustrator alice bowsher is currently on show. i love her playful style, especially the ‘cyclone’ piece which is painted onto canvas and wrapped around a curved wall at the café.you’ll have to visit in person because i can’t find a good picture of it on the internet!
talking of coffee, friends of ours are producing a wonderful new small batch coffee, available in artisan coffee shops in london. its called finders keepers coffee, is produced in spain from beans grown in brazil and has the most delicious berry and mocha flavor.
we are off to meet an old friend in soho, just as the sun is creeping through the clouds. hooray for sundays. x jo
